With blackness and humor as a weapon
Nina Hemmingsson (born 1971) does series of socially critical and satirical point. Her accurate photos can be described as political, feminist and general people. She is one of Sweden’s premier cartoonist and has published ten books and series albums, and has done a lot of “enrutingar” for newspapers and magazines.

With blackness and humor, Nina Hemmingsson brings forth contemporary phenomena and chooses to show the whole person instead of the expected image of the woman. Her images are often pervaded by feelings of panic, anguish and anxiety. In short, she embodies everything’s setbacks. But rather than digging herself into things, she believes she “digs up”. As a way to relate to its existence and all that brings about events and happenings.

Perhaps it’s just the joy of the recognition or the ease of not being alone about a thought or feeling that makes Nina Hemmingsson’s pictures so popular. ”Paniken” comes to each of us a little now and then.

Jag kallar den ”Panik” is Nina Hemmingsson’s first exhibition in the childhood town of Uppsala. The exhibition blends images from the last ten years.

The exhibition is shown in Bror Hjorth’s Hus 24 March – 13 May. Thursday, May 3 at 19, Nina Hemmingsson tells more about her creation.
